Section II: Object
Forensic Psychology risk Assessment Services
HMPPS Psychology Services deliver a range of psychological activities within HM Prisons and NPS Community. These include clinical assessment and intervention, research, consultancy and training. They require HCPC Registered Forensic Psychologists to complete risk assessments on men and women in custody. This will include compilation of professional reports for submission to the Parole Board. These assessments may be required from prison establishments across England and Wales. Services will be required on both a regular and ad-hoc basis to support work usually undertaken by HMPPS Psychology Services. The demand for risk assessments is variable and can sometimes outstrip the HMPPS Psychology Service ability to deliver within timescales required.
